  1. Hi Cecelia, I am so sorry to read of Pat’s passing. She was always a special friend, had a great sense of humor, and always wanted me to know I was welcome to visit her no matter where she was. Her kindness always stood out. I’m thinking of you now, knowing how it feels to be the last of the family still here. God must have special plans for you, for ‘saving the best for last.’ I love you, and pray you will do well. I have so many wonderful memories of each of your family members – your Dad & Mom, Pat, Mary Margaret, Barbara and you. Please take care. Love, Ellen
